        Subject: CFP: Network Detroit Digital Humanities Conference


Network Detroit: Digital Humanities Theory and Practice will return Friday,
September 25, 2015 to Lawrence Technological University. Network Detroit
showcases the best of digital humanities research in the great lakes region
by leading scholars from museums, libraries, universities, liberal arts
colleges, and community colleges. For this event, we welcome proposals for
papers and panels that focus on the digital humanities, especially regarding
the cultural heritage of Michigan and Detroit.

This year our theme is Cultural Criticism and the Digital Humanities, and we
encourage submissions on race studies, gender studies, postcolonial studies,
and political dissidence. The Detroit Historical Society, which will host
this year’s dinner and keynote address, recently launched a special
project entitled “Detroit 1967.”  Papers that address digital approaches
to the memorialization, dissemination, and understanding of this significant
year in Detroit’s history are also encouraged. If you know a student with
a promising project, please encourage them to submit to our student poster
competition open to both undergraduate and graduate students.
